BeIN Sports has announced a multi-year Premier League media rights deal which secures exclusive coverage of English soccer's top flight in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The Qatar-based media company is the incumbent Premier League broadcaster in the region but the new deal sees BeIN Sports retain that role for the next four seasons.

Premier League fans in MENA will be able to watch all 380 games per season exclusively live on BeIN, in addition to having access to comprehensive magazine programming, including pre and post-match shows, as well as daily highlights and weekly wrap-up programmes.

Through the company’s over-the-top (OTT) service, BeIN Connect, subscribers will be able to watch all Premier League content, including the live match streams, across all digital platforms.

The extension sees the Premier League rights remain on BeIN’s roster of European soccer broadcast rights - which includes the top tiers in Spain, Italy, Germany and France as well as the Uefa Champions League and Uefa Europa League – in the run-up to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Richard Scudamore, Premier League executive chairman, said: “We know there are many passionate fans of Premier League clubs right across the Middle East and North Africa, and that BeIN Sports does an excellent job making the competition available to them.

“BeIN is a long-term partner of the League and its first-rate coverage has helped to grow interest in our clubs across many countries.”

“We are honoured that the Premier League has trusted BeIN Media Group and BeIN Sports again to be the official and exclusive broadcaster, champion and custodian of its product in the Middle East and North Africa,” added Nasser Al-Khelaifi, chairman and chief executive of BeIN.

Ratings though appear to be fine for BBC Three on-line

But France Télévisions closing down France 4 is like saying goodbye to both CBBC+BBC Three combined, a quite bad move
I know but I just felt that BBC should've had kept the television version of BBC Three to continue broadcasting along with its online feed.

@Francisque: Do they ever show local accents / dialects on Italian TV? (like on the news?)

And what do you think of this Dutch accent. It sounds a bit Norwegian, doesn't it? The first 100th times I watched this video, I couldn't stop laughing. This accent is amazing :D I love pitch accents.
You're right :)

As for Italian TV: mostly accents.. dialects for the most part are too varied, and hard to understand, except for a few Central Italian ones (Italian is based on the speech of these areas), especially Romanesco, since RAI and a few other broadcasters are based in Rome; but still, in a mild form, not in its strong form

In general dialects in Italy tend not to be spoken in official contexts, like TV etc.
Italy is a quite "Italian"-centric country, in this sense

I know but I just felt that BBC should've had kept the television version of BBC Three to continue broadcasting along with its online feed.

True, but the thing is, broadcasting on TV costs more money than one may think

And, broadcasting live few contents on a loop (BBC Three online has less contents than BBC Three live), would result in complains about BBC wasting money on resources etc.

BBC in general, as of lately, seems having a crisis though, branding-wise especially, with that "Oneness" look on BBC One, which is very very bad

After BBC Three become an Online-only service, it’s time to change BBC Four to BBC Earth, and move comedy, art and music to BBC One and BBC Two, and current affairs to BBC News and BBC One.

In addition, all BBC UK Channels should have a refresh and new look, and start using the graphics and idents that BBC Studios Channels use it.

They should add BBC One’s and BBC Two’s logos during programs, and move BBC Parliament, CBBC and Cbeebies logo to the top-right corner. Also, they should use the BBC logos in horizontal way and put it in promos, in the left side of the screen.

In addition, they should drop the Subtitle text from the idents, and no longer use it during Ident and use it when a program starts on the channel.
